Confused, which film to order

Postby Congemi » 01 Mar 2012, 06:01

I'm hoping someone can help me determine which film I need to order for a birth record. From the Palermo Index of births for 1836-1845 states that Cristina La Mantia was born in or at least her record is recorded in Mezzomorreale Oreto. I entered both words, together & seperately in the LDS catalog....zilch, nada.
Help would be greatly appreciated.

Marty,
Thank you for your response. I sometimes think I'm a complete dunce and researching Sicily isn't making me think any better of myself. Truth is I printed out the complete list (35 pgs many double sided) of civil records for Palermo some months ago when I grew tired of scrolling through page after page of 1600+ entries. My excuse is that I thought it was Mezzomorreale even though I did see the Mezzomonreale. I finally decided I was wrong & found the entries you mentioned but did not cover the birth year. Well, I have since gone back through & on the very last page I found the film for 1821-1840. (whoo hoo)
So I thank you again & know that I do appreciate your time,patience and willingness to help.
